Wolfram Notebooks are viewable for personal use with Wolfram Player and on the web through the Wolfram Cloud as read-only documents with basic controller-driven interactivity.
User-shared and freely distributed content and applications can be deployed without restriction, alongside thousands of examples of engaging, interactive and openly accessible content found on sites like the Wolfram Demonstrations Project and the Notebook Archive.
For commercial retail products or enterprise-wide applications, enterprise-level CDF notebooks run as full-fledged Wolfram Language–based applications on Wolfram Player, with support for product white labeling, source-code encryption, data import/export, file creation and management, saving interface state and connectivity to databases and other programs.
